An Update on Project “Mommy’s Getting Her Sexy Back”

I haven’t given an update on my weight-loss journey in a while, mainly because it wasn’t really helping me to document my everyday meals. I decided that eating healthier and attending the gym regularly was enough for me. It’s working, guys! I have gone down from 182.4 lbs to a solid 174 lbs! I’m even starting to see a difference in how my clothes fit, which is really the most important thing to me. My goal is to be able to fit into my size 5 jeans again and I know it’s going to take some time, but with the results I’m already seeing in just two weeks I know I’ll stay motivated to continue my journey.

I’ve decided that I will post an updated picture at the end of the month, as promised when I started this adventure. I can’t say for sure until I look at the “before” and “after” images side by side, but I think you’ll see a noticeable difference. My Dr. Pepper intake is still at one per day (some days, I admit I have two) and water the rest of the time. I’ve also started drinking coffee again and since I take my cup-of-joe black (no cream, no sugar) I don’t have to worry about taking in any extra calories!

My gym routine consists of two days a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) with Rocky, my personal trainer, for thirty minutes each of those days. She has me doing a lot of basic exercises such as push-ups, squats, lunges and core stability exercises that she learned from Linsday Brin. If I’m able to find the specific workouts online, I will certainly post a link to them with my next update as they are excellent and very effective. Doing these simple exercises (which I can also do at home easily) has even given me more energy in general.

Since Adam and I plan to wait at least a couple of years before we have baby number 2, I want to take advantage of that time and get into the best shape of my life beforehand and continue to stay active throughout my second pregnancy. I plan to attempt a VBAC and being in shape will only up my chances in being successful. So not only do I have my rockin’ body to work towards, but also a healthy and active future pregnancy!

I look forward to continuing updating on my progress and watching my body go back to it’s pre-pregnancy state (well…at least as much as any woman who’s had a baby’s body can at least). If you’re pursuing your own journey to health, I would love to hear about your progress! Feel free to comment on this post or send me a private message at amandacf86@gmail.com. Let’s be healthy mommas together!
